Actually, you cannot do that. You have to use the sim card that comes with your iPhone, this is according to AT&T as well as Apple. When my friend tried unsuccessfully to activate her phone at home, it immediately deactivated her old phone, just rendering her without a phone until she was able to go into the AT&T store. She can, however, use the sim card from her iPhone in her old phone, it works fine.

I do plan on buying an IPhone 3GS in the near future in spite of a couple of problems. The benefits of this device more then out ways the negatives. However, it is important to know the negatives as then you won’t be surprised when they happen and you can factor that into the risk you are taking. I’ve owned my share of cell phones over the years and I think that the IPhone will probably be the one of my best phones ever. Besides, it is an historical event and I want to be a part of history in the making. Since I already have a GSM phone, it will be easy to switch over to the 3GS because all I have to do is take out the sim card from the one and transfer it to the other. I also have an CDMA phone that I use for data since it operates on a different network from rogers and so use that one for internet surfing as it is unlimited. I will be using the IPhone interchangeably with my nokia E71. Sim cards are easy to move from one phone to another. I’m going to put in an order for the 3GS soon. I know that the next generation IPhone will build on this one but it is important to support Apple in this first generation so that they see that there is a demand for this product. Sorry if people on this list took my critiques as a a reason for not buying the phone. Probably the drawback that you can’t change is that you can’t change the battery. I wonder what the phone will cost in Canadian dollars from my local retaler. I suppose that the size of memory isn’t that important but the concept of inclusion.

You can if you're in the phone app. Press home, choose another app, while the call is on. Apparently to the very top of the screen there's a "return to call" bar. I couldn't check this out myself, as my iPhone won't be delivered until monday, but my son tells me that's how his iPhone works.

But can you add appointments on a calendar while talking to some one on the same IPhone? I thought that the IPhone 3GS isn’t capable of running more then one app at a time.

No: they expect you to use the iPhone with it's headset That's all. Because then you have access to the phone's full functionality, e.g. adding an appointment to the calendar, then coming back to the phone app etc.

So I guess Apple isn't perfect after all. They do have their hardware flaws
as well as software problems.  It's the only thing about mac users that
drives me nuts is that they claim that their company is without flaws and that only Microsoft has problems. Hurray! Thank you Apple for joining the
real world of digital!
